  1. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw that thread title.

    2018 MLB Draft Discussion

    I wish it were “for every bust...”! Even for the best run teams, I think it’s more like “for every ten busts....” Just the nature of the beast.
  3. I’ve been seeing this headline for over two months and just realized it was a hopeful metaphor.

    How did they get this bad?

    The headline “I blame DD” was right below the one that said “Bad weather follows Orioles.” Might as well blame Dan for that, too.

    Or ill-advised sellers.

    Sorry this loss is squarely on Buck

    If we lose the division by a game, whoever manages the rest of the way should win a Nobel Prize.

    Chicago Sun: Cubs interested in Manny

    I could, too. If they do, I hope the author knows more about the quality of the Dodgers’ prospects than he does about the O’s players.

    Chicago Sun: Cubs interested in Manny

    Whoever wrote this piece knows very little about the Orioles. Says Arrieta, Miller, Rodriquez, and Hader were all “unimpressive” with the O’s. Arrieta, yes. Miller was lights out for the six weeks or so he was here. Rodriquez and Hader spentlittle and no time in the majors with th O’s. And Montcastle could “easily” move to second. I’m not sure anyone is confident he xould be competent anywhere in the field.

    Hypothetical Scenario

    I’d be inclined to do option 2. We’ll be getting high first round draft choices for, at least, one, probably two years. Use the huge amount of money freed up by that, and other, trades, to play in the top tier FA market and international markets. Don’t trade any of the starters or Givens.

    Rate Our Tradeable Assets

    Except this time it seems like we have four of the five we need (when has that ever been true in the 21st century?) and a promising maybe, Harvey. Unless Gaussman or Bundy could bring in two starters who would be ready by 2020, trading them would seem to be like playing whack-a-mole. Don't have any problems with trading anyone else.

    Rate Our Tradeable Assets

    How much longer is Gausman under control? He was drafted the year after Bundy, wasn't he?We've been trying so long to get five reliable starters on the roster, even making two "major league" ready starters the ante for a Machado trade. It would be tough to give one up when we seem to a year away from finally having five.

    Can't get much smaller than it's been.
  13. Well, I sure as hell don't find them. I think was about three I was when my Dad struck out Kaline the first and only time he faced him.
